Details on this week’s program:
Episode 16: From our home at Indy Terrace, we are thrilled to bring you Weston Hurt, baritone, with Nyle Matsuoka, piano. Weston performs a richly satisfying concert of Verdi, Mahler, and more. He will be joined by a very special guest, his good friend, tenor Bryan Hymel. Don’t miss their stellar duet to close this week’s episode – a real treat!
More on our Special Guest Artist:
An affecting performer best known for Verdi’s iconic baritone roles, Weston Hurt is recognized for his emotionally honest portrayals of characters both sympathetic and monstrous. His ability to balance machismo and vulnerability with equal expressive intensity captivates audiences, and his focus on authentic communication informs his mentorship of the next generation of vocal artists. Weston’s approach – fueled by his experiences as a singer born without a right hand – centers the embrace of one’s unique traits.
Weston began his 2019-2020 season as Eisenstein in Die Fledermaus with Amarillo Opera. He then reprised his Germont in La traviata with Madison Opera. Hurt’s 2018-2019 season included performances of Germont in La traviata with Opera San Antonio and Portland Opera, which he also covered at Lyric Opera of Chicago. He also returned to New Orleans Opera as the title role in Rigoletto. Read more about Weston and his long list of credits on his website, https://www.westonhurt.com/.
